"Games People Play" as written by and Joe South....
All the games people play now, every night every day now
Never meaning what they say now, never saying what they mean
While they while away the hours in their ivory towers
Till they're covered up with flowers in the back of a black limousine

Oh we make one another cry, breakin' hearts when we say goodbye
Cross our hearts and we hope to die, except the other was to blame
Either one will ever kill it, so we gaze and we make pretend
Thinkin' 'bout things that might have been, oh it's a dirty rotten shame

[Chorus]
Talkin' 'bout you and me, and the games people play
Talkin' 'bout you and me, and the games people play

People walkin' up to ya, singin' glory hallelujah
Sayin' what the hell's it to ya, if we do it in the name of the Lord
We're gonna teach ya how to meditate
[Preach our hearts from teacher's faith]
Put them on a hell of hate, come on, let's get on board

[Chorus]

Look around, tell me what you see, what's happening to you and me
Got burning my serenity, to the neighborhood at hand
Cause you're givin' up your sanity, or your pride and your vanity
Turn your back on humanity, ow, when you don't give a damn, not a damn

Talkin' 'bout you and me, and the games people play
Talkin' 'bout everybody, talkin' 'bout you, 'bout you and me
You and me,
I'm talkin' bout the games, the games we all play
All the games, talkin' bout the games people play
